As its schedule between Los Angeles and London Heathrow has grown to three flights a day (in cooperation with joint venture partner Delta), Virgin Atlantic Airways has cut the ribbon on a new Clubhouse in LAX’s Terminal 2 this week.
The 4,000-square-foot lounge is open to Virgin’s Upper Class and Flying Club Gold members as well as Delta passengers in Upper Class, and SkyMiles Diamond, Platinum and Gold Medallion members traveling on a Virgin-operated flight.

The Clubhouse is centered around an “apothecary-inspired bar” that offers cocktails and healthy juice drinks. The space is Wi-Fi enabled, and Virgin teamed up with the hot LA restaurant Hinoki & the Bird to create a full-service food and beverage menu.
Prior to the opening of the new lounge, Virgin Atlantic passengers could use the Air Canada lounge in Terminal 2 or could walk to Terminal 3 to visit the Virgin America loft lounge.
On May 5, Virgin deploys its new Boeing 787 Dreamliner on one of its three daily flights between LAX and London.

We just had lunch at Hinoki and the Bird, and it was great. Look for Asian-influenced fresh California fares.
